The rational choice is to save the money or invest in stocks, real state or a small business.

When faced with the euphoria of winning the lottery and having seemingly endless cash at their disposal most people lose all rationality. Even people who could think clearly before winning waste their wealth in stupid shit. Lotto winners who don't end back in square one (if not dead or broken) a few year later are a statistical anomaly.

From what I have read it is 60/40 ; but then again, it depends on how much money is it considered "winning the lotto" as I and my family have won the lotto hundreds of times but it's hardly amounted to one month of salary 2 or 3 times then all the other times it's much less money.

My mother won the local lotto a couple of times too, but I was talking about high profile winners.

Like, the current Powerball jackpot is 92 million dollars and it's likely to grow much larger before anyone actually wins it. I really don't believe whoever wins it will be able to keep a cool head about it.

It probably cost ALOT more than the winnings lol and it
probably has something to do with the state and regulations.
Good idea tho.

I would keep my winning a secrecy. Then i would invest in something so i wont go back to being broke. Other than that i would live my life normally and i would still keep my job like a smart person. More income the better.

There's not a very clear line unless you mean only that lotto that only has first place winner and a lto of times not even that so a lot of money accumulates; there area lot of hundreds thosuandand even tens of thousands  lotto winners, that just pay their debts, travel a bit, buy a house/car, the save the rest of the money, while not even quitting their day job, with the most adventurous ones starting a busines of their own.

Probably disappear, or at least try to. A lot of rotten people tend to come out of the woodwork when someone gets money. There's no sense in allowing things like that to come to pass.

I'd pay my dues and get the hell out as soon as I possibly could. Probably move to some state nobody give a shit about, buy a small house (maybe with some bit of land), and spend the rest of my days there.
This thread is producing a shitload of bad grammar, at this rate it'll be a disease.

What will I do with a billion dollars that (figuratively) suddenly appeared in front of me?

Well, first of all, I will keep it a secret while I get all of financial affairs straight. Taxes, debts, etc.

Then I will by myself a secret house with a secret car in someplace secret so no one will bother me in terms of financial matters.

Then I will become very wealthy secret investor.

Then, I will disappear. Never to be seen again except to pay to make MUGEN great once more, to be a patron and commissioner of the music and the arts (except for modern arts. Those can die in a fire), or to shitpost while sitting on a pile of Fuck You money.

You see, this is sometimes why I envy wealthy people like Notch. He has all of the money in the world with no strings attached, so he is untouchable to all who are his enemies.

I might expand on this a bit more when I have more time and thought.
